Ai-Wen Wu Kratz

On visual art, Ezra Pound said, “Make it new.” That is, we must make art that bears our own Time Signature. Along with medicine, engineering and all other fields, art is in a constant quest for discovery. My search in the visual art is spirituality, intellectualism and aesthetics.

I Found In Him My Star, My Sun, 2018
Acrylic on canvas
28” x 45”

I draw my inspirations from literature, classical music, stage designs, vocal art, choreographic lines in ballet and modern dance. I hope my works will bring joy and relief to others.
